This is a case of bigger is not better.

Who actually cares about the resolution of the camera? Very, very few people at this point because cameras in phones are good enough. And if you care that much about resolution you will use a real camera. In fact, the higher resolution now means that storage may become an issue. Further, by going overboard with the camera they've made the camera the focus (sorry) instead of the phone, the apps, the connectivity with the world. It's bulky and it won't sit flat, and I struggle to see this as a desirable (from a mass market point of view) item.

Resolution isn't the killer app anymore. It's ISO and grain, and with the 1020 only going to 3200 (the same as the iPhonw 5) it's not enough of a differentiator. Image stabilisation obviously increases the effective ISO, but still, I'd rather they put the effort into ISO 12,800 or even 25K so that pics out at night look great, rather than have 41Mp of grain when you take your indoor pics.
cheers,
